Portofino itself is quite expensive and this 2 star hotel is simply great hub to stop for few days to enjoy the beach and local attractions. Don't expect to see tipical chain hotel similar to Marriott or other brands. It's cozy, home style place with clean & nice bed, aircondition, shower and free wi-fi (which was working just perfect).

The staff and facilities could not have been more nice. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Italy! The entire area was just lovely. The walks to Portofino or to Santa Margherita were both scenic and good for a bit of exercise. We were able to walk to one of the loveliest beaches in the world across... More

We stayed at this hotel for a 3 night visit knowing it is a B&B and we got what expected from booking and looking at pics online. Located conveniently between Portofino and S Margherita Ligure, this hotel is in picturesque Paraggi, along the coastal narrow road with close access to its pretty beach with clear green sea water. Also close... More

My sister and had been travelling for a while before we stayed at this hotel. Firstly, the location is perfect if you are looking to get away from the craziness and hustle and bustle of towns/cities/too many people, (because, let's face it, you need a little breather every now and then)! Equally, the hotel is located right between SML and... More

The positive Trip Advisor reviews are well deserved. A nice location for touring the area A nice room and fine breakfast. The staff know a lot about the area, including the walking trails. If you can, hike to Portofino, about 20 minutes on a trail with fantastic vistas of the coast. If you are in to long hikes, there are... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed in the Paradise room on the top floor. Amazingly comfortable bed. Excellent bathroom. But best of al is the amazing 60 foot terrace with views of the sea.
